A bunion is a structural deformity of the bones and joints between the foot and big toe. It is a large bony bump. A bunion forms when the big toe deviates toward the little toes. The skin over the bunion becomes rough, red, and swells up. This can cause pain and discomfort especially when walking. It also causes foot bones into unatural shapes.
